its a long day

today is the summer solstice
the week ends here in santa barbara with a
weekend long celebration

the highlight is the
funky feeling summer solstice parade down state street

we only went once a few years ago
i like the feel to it
all the dancing
the crowded streets
the funky almost mardi gras feel to it

we look forward to be in the crowd
amongst all the excitement

its the longest day of the year
its when the sun is highest above us
its definitely the mark of
summers here now

for those of us
in the alzheimers world
its the purple day
maybe a bit more soberness to the day

its the longest day
from the alzheimers community
honor all those affected by this awful disease

those numbers of us affected are starting
to exponentially increase
to a number
that will bankrupt our health care system
in many of your lifetimes

i dont see the government doing anything much about it
their heads are in the sand it seems
like most crisises
they wait until it gets real bad

its going to get bad
sooner than we realize

this is the day
the solstice day
to celebrate life
its also the day to celebrate
the movement
to find a cure and or treatment for this disease
that none of us want
one that many fear getting

we need your thoughts
help us
donate walk our walks contact your government reps
to provide us with more monies to fight this disease
